How to Get There
Have passed by Le Pavilion many times. Never chose to stay. I remember before Katrina when it didn’t look inviting. I remember wondering how one parks.
We came in for my son’s graduation at Tulane. The main commencement is at the SuperDome. No brainer; 15 minute walk with new art sculptures along the route ( and lots more restaurants! We parked in an an indoor lot across from the hotel. I’m not a fan of valet and had lower priced continuous access book online.
The hotel staff must have excessive smile lines as EVERYONE smiled. No question was too unimportant. The PB$J bar was a hoot!
Rooms comfortable including beds. Hallways regretfully noosey at midnights but kids were graduating and it is New Orleans.
A clssic New Orleans hitel brought to the present, honoring the past. Good rates. Will stay there many times more!
Trip Advisor tells me that my previous,well considered, review of the Le Pavillon Hotel was removed because of the completion of a " Major Renovation".
My last visit was March 1 & 2, 2019.
I thought the hotel, built in 1907, was a landmark addition to New Orleans. It exudes the classic architecture of that era. The lobby is spectacular renovation. My room on the 5th floor was adequate but small as was the bathroom. Linens were very good. The front desk staff were attentive and welcoming.
The lobby bar and the crystal dining room are substandard. Go elsewhere.
I have reviewed this hotel in the past. If you will notice, there are no longer any reviews beyond the last month. This is because of a "Major Renovation" to the hotel.
Well the hotel is a very stately landmark in New Orleans, architecturally significant, and renovating the rooms "should" certainly cause a welcomed physical change to the rooms. Let us just hope the "MAJOR RENOVATION" include re-education of the staff to deliver a level of customer service to match.
Stayed here for a week and it was an amazing stay! The hotel itself is gorgeous. Such a great classic look. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. Also the location is a plus. Within walking distance of everything. The bartender made us some great cocktails. We tried breakfast in room one morning and it was delicious. We definitely recommend the pontchartrain omelet and the croque madame.
I do want to comment on some of the things I read about in the negative reviews.
Noise level - We found the hotel to be very quiet. Our room was right next to the elevator and even then we never had a problem.
Interior - The room was beautiful and the hotel looked amazing.
All in all we would most definitely stay here again!
Upon arrival the front desk only had 1 of the 2 rooms that I already paid and reserved. My copy of the paid reservation for 2 double-queen rooms for 3 nights was the only proof I had to not get charged again. One desk man couldn't figure it out. The Peanut butter and Jelly bar they are famous for no longer has a staff member keeping it stocked, maintaining order or offering friendly assistance so everyone doesn't spill their food everwhere.
The toilet Barely flushed and sometimes took 7 to 8 flushes. There is no microwave so you can't bring leftovers back with you. The pool and fitness center close in a town that doesn't.
